Re: ive done a deal with the devil........

pics to come.its white with a wing and a set of 5 spoke honda wheels.it was a one owner with full history and all receipts.the donk is a quad cam 3.0l and as much as it hurts to say ive blown a few e series falcs and a worked turbo laser..it handles really well and rides really plush.as for fuel it is averaging 10L per 100km and thats mostly city driving in peakhour and a trip up the highway home once a week...and i have a heavy foot.
bonus is the box full of gold badges in the glovebox waiting to be fitted..
FULLI SIK ULEH.........

Classy upgrade mate, well done! Look forward to the pics.

Shame you aren't a bit closer or we could see how it goes against the Eunos. :s5

Re: ive done a deal with the devil........

My grandma has a 2001 model 4 cylinder V-tec. Not my kind of car at all, but the engine is nice. I'm suprised you think it handles well, but then again I'm used to the MR2 so not many other cars I drive handle as well as it.
Oh and if you're a big guy (like me) you'll find that there's not much space in the front seat.

Re: ive done a deal with the devil........

well it has no leather which is one of the reasons i purchased this car (im not a huge leather fan)as for actual power im keen to find out myself.mods will be limited to underbody neons and a fuggin big mugen sticker...lol...nah im just puttin 17 inch rims,possibly in a light gold colour to match the badging,new speakers,roof mount dvd,no zorst or engine mods at all.as for room well im 130 kilos and 6 foot and i have no prob fitting in,and im betting my balls this thing handles better than my el ex cop car which was lowered slightly and had all the good suspension gear in it.

Re: ive done a deal with the devil........

the power figures sound about right but the fuel figures sound a bit off,i have checked and as i said before about 10l average city and high way.about the same all in town,but i reckon slightly more than 8 on all trip..
wot are the figures on an el falcon?
